'Real Housewives' Star

Sues for $2 Mil Over

Son's Horrific Car Crash

1/20/2013 2:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0120_Alexia-Echevarria_getty"Real Housewives of Miami" star Alexia Echevarria says she was inundated with medical bills after her son's tragic car crash and now she's suing her insurance broker for $2 million ... claiming her massive bills are all their fault.

Echevarria filed a lawsuit in Florida court against a company called Garcia Lorenzo & Associates ... claiming they dropped the ball when it came to executing her insurance policy.

Echevarria's 13-year-old son was in a "catastrophic" car accident back in 2011 which landed him in the ICU with severe bodily injuries, including a brain injury. In the suit, Alexia says thanks to GL's shoddy coverage, she was faced with millions of dollars in medical bills.

Echevarria claims that when she signed with the company back in 2008, she asked for a special type of extra coverage -- the exact coverage that would have helped curb the costs from her son's accident. She claims the company carelessly left it out.

A judge has yet to rule.

Anyone who watched house wives of Miami would agree this woman is a total bitch!! Her older son who beat up a homeless man clearly gets his anger issues from his mother

I don't know this lady, but what good is creating life saving devices and procedures if no one can pay for it?

She should also sue her plastic surgeon, he made her look like a man with a Jessica Simpson wig. I hope she never meets Austin Powers, he will try to pull her wig off and say She's A Man Baby!

perhaps her son can visit http://cheongsoonhaur.com/product/professional-bazi-analysis-annual/
to avoid accident.
Also, perhaps she can visit http://cheongsoonhaur.com/product/haur-feng-shui-analysis-offsite/
to have feng shui consultation to avoid inauspicious incidents and to ensure winning of the case.

You people who are pizzing about reading her policy know darn well most people including themselves do not read the fine print of an health insurance policy until balance due. I thought rich folks had business managers who took care of this - sounds like she needs one. Irregardless, I hope she wins. Sick of insurance companies taking our $$ and then hiding behind their fine print when it comes time to fairly pay what they are supposed to. Go Blondie!! BTW Blondie, time to lay off the knife. Your nose could cut a pizza.

What a joke and a waste of our legal system. God forbid she should have to spend some of the hard earned money she made as a trophy wife. This chick is exactly what's wrong this country. A gold digger never gives up digging I guess. I hope she gets laughed out of court and they make her pay for the insurance company's legal fees.

For a few more million he can be rebuilt as the bionic man. I think that process only costs six million.

You pay for what you get and if you can't read you should have let someone else get it for you.
